IT HAS BEEN MY DREAM FOR ALONG TIME TO SEE A TUNNEL/BRIDGE AT LIKONI. FOR YOUR INFO I LOST A COUSIN AS HE HEADS TO HOSPITAL JUST BECAUSE OF THE DELAYS THERE. AGAIN THREE YRS AGO I LOST A SISTER AS A RESULT OF A TRUCK WITH FAILING BREAKS. IT PAINS ME COZ I NARRATE FROM EXPERIENCE POINT OF VIEW.

I HAVE BEEN WISHING ALSO TO SEE A DUAL BETWEEN CHANGAMWE AND MARIAKANI, ITS HEAL RIGHT NOW WHEN YOU NEED TO TRAVEL WESTWARDS, KENGELENI AND KIKAMBALA DUAL AS WELL AS THE DONGOKUNDU.

ALL THESE WILL OPEN THE AREAS FOR INVESTORS AND JOB CREATION...

CAN THE GOVERNMENT STAND TO BE COUNTED? ISSUES OF COMPENSATIONS SHOULD BE DEAL WITH JUSTLY JUST LIKE THEY WERE ON CONSTRUCTION OF THIKA SUPER HIGHWAY!
Im sorry for your losses..

I mean if the MRC or groups were like smart they would use their lobbying skills and make the government act by them developing a proper urban plan for mombasa, Malindi and Lamu and its environs. But the MRC were dumb and called for secession which many people disagreed with them and made the government crackdown on them... The government isn't really feeling the pressure unless the public demands it, Then we can see the changes we want at the coast...

A master plan for Mombasa's infrastructural development was yesterday unveiled by President Mwai Kibaki.

Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony of the Mombasa port second container terminal, the president also asked relevant ministries to explore possibilities of building a bridge at the Likoni crossing channel.

“I call upon the ministries of transport and roads to look into possibility of constructing a bridge or a tunnel across the Likoni channel which is part of the transnational highway, so as to address the prevalent ferry woes,” he said.

The president’s statement comes at a time when various transport hitches have been reported across the channel ranging from ferry mechanical problems to ferry workers strikes.

These have led to traffic snarl ups in Mombasa and south Coast with commuters, among them tourists, counting loses and missing flights respectively.

The president also said the launch of the Port Development Master Plan will see the kick-off of the planned construction of Dongo Kundu by-pass to link Mombasa-Nairobi road with Lunga Lunga road, thus linking Mombasa and South Coast.

“In order for this Mombasa port to successfully play its role in transport logistics, the road and rail transport systems must also be efficient. That is why we are undertaking major infrastructure investment in road transport,” he said.

The second terminal at the port is to be constructed through a Sh27 billion loan from Japanese Development Corporation Agency. It will make the port's capacity increase to handle the excesses of 770 000 twenty equivalent units.

“With additional space of 1.3 million containers capacity after completion of this project, the second container terminal will also be positioned to handle projected increase in excess of 960 TEUs,” said Kibaki.

Kibaki added that the soon to be commissioned construction of the first three berths at Lamu port will be a step ahead to meet the growing port demands in the region.

Roads minister Frankline Bett said an alternative bridge linking Mombasa and North Coast was in the offing. “The new Dongo Kundu bypass comes with a 1.5KM bridge package that will ease congestion. Designs are also underway to construct another bridge to link North Coast and Mombasa to ease congestion at Nyali bridge,” said Bett.


true. this is what mombasa deserves
